All of a Flutter

Here I come

all of a flutter,

a flapping frenzy of feathers

determined to find a space 

in the cooing crowd.

A space that fits me.

A space befitting

a bird of a feather.

And now I’m ready, 

red legged and pigeon toed ready

to strut my stuff with the rest.

We’ll take those tasty tourist titbits

with a bow here,

and a coo there.

We’re their strutting stars

shining iridescently

making their day

until our finale

when we rise

up as one,

all of a flutter,

a flapping fluttering frenzy

ready for the next audience.
